    Rare/blue = sealed on the outside, but not cooked through.
    Medium [rare] = cooked through, but with some redness in the centre.
    Well-done = totally cooked, all brown right through.

    rsrinivas:

    So: it's a well-done steak and a steak (that is) well done.

    Can you see the difference from the examples?
